MGM will release at least two collector's or special-edition DVD titles each quarter, along with anniversary-branded gift sets in commemorative packaging, through March 2009. In addition, each quarter will focus on a particular aspect of UA's filmmaking history to honor the films, directors, actors and music that represent the studio's heritage.

The set, housed in a Plexiglas case, will sell for $869.98, making it one of the most expensive gift sets ever.
Also out Dec. 11 is a three-title "Essential Collection" gift set.
The fourth quarter also will see the release of "Rocky: The Complete Saga," with all six films in the franchise; the 21-title "James Bond Ultimate Collector's Set"; and a 30th anniversary edition of New York, New York.
